Irish Grinstead of 702 — best known for hit songs like “Where My Girls At” — has passed away.

On Saturday (September 16) Grinstead’s sister and fellow group member, Lemisha Grinstead, took to Instagram where she informed fans of the tragic news.

“It is with great sadness that I have to let you know that my beautiful sister and friend has passed away this evening,” she wrote. “She has had a long battle and she is finally at peace. That girl was as bright as the stars! She was not only beautiful on the outside, but also within. Sharing the stage with her was a joy I will cherish for the rest of my life! We, the family ask for prayers and respect for our privacy as we grieve an outstanding loss to our family.”

Shortly after, fans and fellow celebrities alike chimed in with their condolences remembering Grinstead as a “timeless” creative.

“Sending an outpouring of love to the 702 family @itsmeelah and @lemisha_the_gemini. It breaks my heart to hear about the passing of Irish,” wrote D Nice in an Instagram post alongside a black-and-white photo of Irish.
